Design History:
This design was part of the original series of forty-eight designs completed by October 1931 and was also included in later reprintings. Note that the title-caption is spelled incorrectly for English. The example images were taken with different cameras. However, Version III copies typically do differ somewhat in printing technique and ink color from earlier version copies.

The silhouette of wf5 is also used as the background element in a supplemental set design, wfx1.
